Artist Statement: In her song, Under The Rainbow, Trisha Yearwood sings about dreams falling from the sky. This month (May 2012), a dream fell from the sky for Alzheimer's patients as the National Alzheimer's Plan was put into action. This plan sets a deadline of 2025 to finally find effective ways to treat Alzheimer's, offering hope to all those who are affected by this horrible disease. My quilt was made to commemorate this giant step towards ending Alzheimer's forever.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $50 for the AAQI.
